There's Stainless...and there's Century Neville Stainless.
Steve Neville developed his tool making skills at the Royal Aircraft Establishment (RAE), Farnborough, UK, in the mid 1980’s. He served his apprenticeship making aircraft parts and had access to some of the most cutting edge technology available. It’s interesting to note that carbon fibre was invented at RAE!
Steve’s passion for carp angling and experiences on venues like Cutmill, Farnham and Broad Oak, Odiham left him thinking that he could make his own bank sticks, buzzer bars and other stainless steel components as what he wanted – simply did not exist. Steve soon developed a cult following for his innovative and high quality work and he set up his own company in 1990.
Over the following years his business grew quietly and by word of mouth. Steve Neville products became synonymous with durability, immaculate design principals and real quality.
Century has now teamed up with Steve – to progress common interests and carry forward his stainless steel project. Steve remains in close contact and has personally approved every item in the cooperation.
Century will combine its resources with Steve’s innovative approach and continue to bring both the existing ranges and new, well researched and tested products – to discerning anglers who value their investment.
Needless to say – everything is designed and manufactured in UK under ISO 9001:2000 quality standards and ISO 14001:2004 environmental standards.
